SHARE Best Of: Actor Richard E. Grant / Rockabilly Christmas With JD McPherson

Richard E. Grant co-stars as the alcoholic sidekick to Melissa McCarthy in 'Can You Ever Forgive Me?', which tells the story of a broke writer who makes money by forging literary letters. Grant talks about growing up in Swaziland, witnessing his mother have an affair and narrowly escaping an attack by his own father.

Book critic Maureen Corrigan shares her picks for the best books of the year.

Songwriter JD McPherson pledged he'd never do an album of Christmas songs — but we're so glad he's broken that promise. He and his band perform live in-studio from their album 'Socks.'
